Weekly Weekend Update

This weekend was all about celebrating Luke's birthday and it was lots of fun!!!

Friday I brought home a birthday cake to kick off the celebrating! Luke didn't really want a cake.....but I did so I bought one! We both ended up eating it and it was yummy! After that we went to a local little Italian restaurant. Aren't local restaurants the best? I'm all about chain restaurants but there is something about those little hole-in-the-walls.
Headed to dinner:
Saturday we headed to my hometown because Luke was practicing with his band. Not the usual birthday celebration but they have a show on Thursday (yay!) so they needed to practice one last time before the show.
So while he was practicing I just hung out with my family, which of course is always fun. We spent about 2 hours at a furniture store looking for living room furniture for my parents. Which I have figured out I truly love furniture shopping! I just wish I could buy everything I wanted!
I also got to spend time with this precious little guy (my nephew): Holding the puppy that could be mine :-(
Saturday night we met Luke's parents for dinner at Cheesecake Factory.
Funny Story:
While we were eating I turned around and glanced at the people in the booth behind us. It was a young couple with a set of parents. I didn't see the girl but I noticed that the boy look VERY familiar.

I tried to go back to my eating, but I KNEW that I knew him from somewhere so I turned back around to look at his wife to see if I recognized her. I did! It was Whitney from Glamorous Life of a House Wife.
It was so crazy, we were right next to each other!!! I wanted to say hi to her but then my nerves got the best of me and I started debating about whether I should even say anything to her. But eventually I decided that I needed to say something!

So I waited until they were about to leave, and then stuck my head over the booth and said: Whitney! I didn't know if she would recognize me but she did!
It was lots of fun to randomly meet a blog friend. She was super nice and so beautiful in person!!
I am so glad we got to meet Whitney!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
